What is MovMeant?
“Your body is your subconscious mind.” – Dr. Candace Pert.
Emotional memory is stored in the mind-body. It lives within every crevice of our being. MovMeant releases the mind-body of stored trauma to bring forth healing through a felt sense creative process. Not all feelings can be expressed verbally. MovMeant supplies a safe space to explore our emotional landscape by physically moving our way through the storm. The body constantly gives us subtle cues. Many of us are aware of external or verbal signs but unfortunately we quickly dismiss our powerful intuitive nature. MovMeant will guide you towards reconnecting body-mind-spirit by using various movement practices, explorative exercises, vocalization, breath and playful imagination to assist in your self-love journey towards a more peacefully connected you.
Who is the MovMeant Audience?
How is MovMeant different from a dance class?
PHILOSOPHY OF MovMEANT: Movement is Medicine.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
MovMeant is rooted in the power of breath and vocalization. Unlocking the throat chakra is at the core of this empowering practice. Tamara guides her students through breath-to-movement creative explorative exercises and lightly choreographed movement sequences to assist in activating your felt sense. This is done without labels, rules, or expectations, within a non judgement zone inviting YOU to be unapologetically YOU.
Tamara guides, but you decide! Classes and workshops are ALL LEVELS unless otherwise noted. MovMeant is YOUR practice first and foremost. YOU choose how far you want to dig in. Students are always encouraged to take it at their own pace and comfort level. Your breath is your internal music setting the pace for your practice as the movement allows your spirit to run wild. This invigorating combo of breath to movement within an openly structured class provides a space for the spirit to dance and the rest is your primitive organism performing natures magic!
Tamara’s guided classes and workshops are one of a kind. She guides her classes/ workshops/ intensives through intuitive teaching. By observing her students closely and providing a safe environment to play, an honest conversation unfolds. Tamara has been teaching all styles of movement for over 20 years and has been a professional and world class athlete/ dancer/ contortionist/ gymnast/ rhythmic gymnast/ aerialist/ artist/ choreographer/ yoga practitioner for well over 35 years (refer to bio). All she shares comes from her personal experiences, her daily practice and life lessons. As she evolves, so do her teachings, so prepare to always be surprised and challenged to explore deeper. Open minds and open hearts are strongly encouraged. The more vulnerable the approach, the more discovery unfolds.
